There has been a lot of talk and discussion happening over USB-C, but most of us seem to have no knowledge about it. Well, here’s a brief guide to get started.

What is it?
USB-C is a new industry standard connector and cable used for connectivity and power. It was developed by the USB Implementers Forum, the group of companies that has developed, certified, and shepherded the USB standard.

It’s this a micro-USB?
Certainly! While it looks like a micro-USB at first glance, it is slightly thicker and has no up or down operation.

Is this also USB 3.1?
Yes, and twice as fast as USB 3.0. It’s fully compatible electrically with USB 3.0, though it won’t plug in physically without an adapter.

What else does it support?
The USB-C connector supports DisplayPort, HDMI, power, USB, and VGA.

Overall, it’s the hot take in the industry. So grab it before it gets replaced!
